About 5 pm PST, The Desert Freedom Press learned that under the current “emergency”, Police Chief Jeff Gilbert has suspended ALL officers who filed criminal and ethical complaints against him. This leaves only the four officers who chose to stand with the Chief, despite the controversy and ongoing investigation by DPS. The same officers seen in the “Jennifer Jones arrest” video below. La Paz County Sheriff Don Lowery told the Parker Pioneer Newspaper last week that he had provided back up units to patrol the perimeter of Town Hall during the June 12th council meeting. Quartzsite Police Chief Jeff Gilbert and Sheriff Lowery served together as officers on the Colorado Indian Tribes Reservation. Several Sheriff’s vehicles have been seen in the town over the last hour.
Reportedly, the officers are on “house arrest” from 8 am – noon, and 1 pm – 5 pm and have been instructed not to speak with media…(but their families can.)
